I have a short movie I want to post but I have a few questions

Hello,My name is Pat Adduci. I have recently retired from Lockheed Martin working as an engineer. But my real love has been stop motion animation. As far back as 70s I have worked on some freelance projects using clay and stop motion for education, marketing and Christian film projects. Most of it has been tabletop animation shot in 16mm. I was never able to successfully do composite work until the advent of digital video. I did some experiments and working part-time over the years had some…

Kickstarter

Hi all, I have a Kickstarter campaign that's running right now to fund my new stop motion film, Humanoid.

The premise of the plot: A man-eating robot is seeking revenge against humanity. One day, he stumbles across a humanoid.

I went public last night and am a long way from funding. If you can help, that would be great!

There's nothing like stop motion simply because of the fact that you are manipulating real world objects in front of a…

It's A Small World - puppet making

I'm working on my new project called 'It's A Small World' using 12cm puppet.

I got this idea from a puppet I made in 2015 but this my old buddy is not able to animate anymore because her armature is broken. I use wire armature for her. I didn't consider seriously to animate her. I made her just for fun so I didn't give much effort to make a good armature.…

Making of: Something Or Nothing day 5&6

I've realised whilst watching this last video, since I've been making live-action films I have been very wrapped up in the whole production of the films, I'm currently producing a short film for a first time director who has a great 'Guy Richie' style script, the problem we came across was that it set mostly inside a chicken shop, and unfortunately, chicken shop opening hours are rubbish for filming in, the director tried shooting the film before I got involved, and the chicken shop they had…

Making of: Something Or Nothing Day 3&4

After I finished my creative media course I worked full time as a builders labourer for a year, trying to find the time to make my films, then decided that I'd give film school a go, and so I started my degree this September (2015) but unfortunately it wasn't for me, as like many others, most annoying thing is that I kind of knew film school has their flaws before I started, and the reason I didn't go the first year I got onto the course. For many different reasons I have lost my motivation…

Making of: Something Or Nothing

I've recently re-discovered my love for stop motion, and have been looking over some of my old stuff I made when I was getting into animation as a kid, I had a look at my old youtube channel and came across a series of making of videos I shot on my families point and shoot digital camera and edited on windows movie maker. 

There was around two weeks left of the summer holidays and I gathered my younger brother Joe, and my cousin who had just moved to our village, Steve. And I thought…
